The [Sustainability - Transformation - Transfer] Research Centre is a scientific institution of the Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development (HNEE). It is funded by the Brandenburg Ministry of Science, Research and Culture (MWFK) under the institutional contract between the university and the state (January 2020-December 2023).
Sustainable development is not created in a test tube, but needs to be practised and tested. How can researchers and practitioners work together? How do they learn from and with one other, and how can this dialogue be meaningfully encouraged? These are the questions that the [Sustainability - Transformation - Transfer] Research Centre is exploring using the concept of sustainability transfer.
(Prof. Matthias Barth, President of the Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development)
The Research Centre aims to provide a scientific basis for the concept of sustainability transfer, to further define this concept and to position the HNEE‚Äôs activities in the international research discourse on sustainability transformation. The Research Centre will bring together and further develop the university‚Äôs diverse initiatives in these areas with a focus on both concepts and empirical findings. This will enable the HNEE to better understand its role in sustainability transformation across universities and disciplines and to highlight its contributions accordingly. In this way, the Research Centre creates impetus for the implementation of the HNEE‚Äôs transfer strategy and works closely with the InnoSupport Forschung | Gr√ľndung | Transfer service unit.
The Research Centre‚Äôs interdisciplinary team reflects the combined expertise of the social, natural and engineering sciences at the HNEE, and also creates a space for inter- and transdisciplinary research and dialogue for practitioners and scientists from outside the HNEE.
With its projects, activities, and publications, the Research Centre contributes to the development and spread of knowledge and expertise related to sustainability transfer and transformation.
"Logbuch der Ver√§nderungen" (Logbook of changes)
Changes in day-to-day life are evident everywhere due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, how they are perceived and what effects they have on individuals is being researched in the citizen science project ‚ÄúLogbuch der Ver√§nderungen‚ÄĚ. The ‚ÄúLogbuch der Ver√§nderungen‚ÄĚ is accessible online. Citizens can participate with a pseudonym to prevent the sender from being identified: https://logbuch-der-veraenderungen.org/
